can anyone advise me on what town on the course would be best to stay in to view the NW 200 on May 13th 2006? Some other questions:

1. Is the race only that one day? should I get there a few days before to watch practices?

2. Is it possible to get around the track the day of the race? Is the track open to traffic for short periods of time between classes?

3. Best city to fly into? Belfast? I'm thinking of Shannon so I can have a nice drive and see some more of Ireland, I've only seen south of Shannon. Too far to drive?

cheers

Hi there,

I'm from Longford (south Ireland) if you are planning on a drive fly to shannon, its not that far and its a nice spin, will be heading up on the bike myself this year (again:).

It is a weekend affair so get there a couple of days before.

The circuit is open to the public ( with speed restrictions etc...) each morning during the races and is closed off before the races / practice starts

thanks for the reply. If I pull off this trip, maybe we can hoist a pint together. Any suggestions on what town to stay in? (Best hotel rates and best party atmosphere after the races)

So you must see the Athea (sp?) races too huh? Hopefully someday I'll get there. Too many races, not enough money.

Yeah I head to most of the road races around Ireland. The Walderstown races are the closest to me.

Hotels etc.. not sure. I got to Derry to a mates house an crash out on his floor


PM me if you make it over and I'll arrange to meet.

Since I didn't make the ride out I would feel a bit checky taking the free breakfast from RRD. Trying to hook up with CharlieIRL from biker.ie as he is heading from Athlone ( i'm living in Longford at the moment)

Sure if ye can make it do.
He's said in his post that it's open to all and that all are welcome, probably heading on a rideout afterwards as well so it'd good to hook up for that anyway.
